I am a visual artist, working primarily in pencil and paper but occasionally scanning a drawing in to make a digital version. I cant draw people yet, at least not reliably, but Im working on it.
Im also writing a fanfic. It's a Pokemon Super Fic called On the Ground taking place in the non-canon Symphora region, in which a jaded intrepid reporter assembles a team to save the world from its prophesied destruction.
- Pokémon (I started a bit late - Diamond was my first game, but I've come a long way since then.)
- Spyro the Dragon
- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
- Spore (Even if it does get repetitive after a while.)
- Viva Piñata and its sequel
Shows: (I've got some serious catching-up to do on some of these...)
- Pretty much everything in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the first Avengers movie is still my favorite.
- Venom (2018)
- The Emperor's New Groove
- The Greatest Showman
- Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole (The movie is what got me into the books. It's a good movie, even if it is inaccurate. Where the heck did that echidna even come from?)
- Pokémon Detective Pikachu
- Throw a dart at the Werebeast Tropes page, and chances are good you'll hit one.
- Adorkable: For obvious reasons.
- Cursed with Awesome: Especially when the characters acknowledge the awesome instead of just (w)angsting over the curse.
- Dark Is Not Evil / Light Is Not Good: Interesting subversions.
- Did We Just Have Tea with Cthulhu? / Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: As cool as punching him out can be, there are other interesting ways to interact with cosmic horrors.
- Fan Disservice: I have my limits, but not being a fan of plain ol' fanservice, I find this amusing.
- Good Bad Bugs: From "hilarious" to "really freaking useful." My current favorite is Pokémon Diamond and Pearl's RETIRE Glitch. No points for guessing why.
- Noodle Incident: Used well, it enhances the sense that the characters have a history beyond the story itself. Besides, it can be really funny.
- Shown Their Work: It's really cool to see when creators do their research.
- Transformation Horror: As mentioned under Nightmare Fetishist in the "Tropes that apply to me" section, I have a fascination with this kind of thing.
- Acting Out a Daydream: I do this quite a bit, usually during my walking-around-talking-to-myself sessions. Downplayed, as I don't usually act out all of my actions in the daydream.
- Asperger Syndrome: Technically not a trope, but I was diagnosed at the age of three.
- Asexuality: Possibly. I don't know for sure if I actually lack attraction, or just wouldn't recognize it if it slapped me in the face. Either way, I'm at the very least uninterested. Ditto for romantic attraction.
- Author Appeal: I seem to gravitate towards superheroes and shapeshifting. I also like villains who are brilliant masterminds.
- Attention Deficit Creator Disorder: I've recently shelved some of my ideas for later, and even then I still have at least four things I'm currently working on.
- Berserk Button: People using "autistic" as an insult. Fortunately, I don't frequent the kinds of places where I'd see this a lot, but still.
- Casual/Competitive Conflict: I lean towards casual, but sometimes I do learn some of the more advanced tactics... and then use them to enhance my casual play.
- Cloudcuckoolander: I function fairly normally, but I do talk to myself a lot. That's one of the main things - listing all my cuckoolander-ish tendencies here would result in quite the wall of text.
- Conveniently Interrupted Document: I use this on occasion to avoid giving out identifying information.
- The Ditherer: A combination of types, primarily the "Too Many Trees" variety.
- Furries Are Easier to Draw: I'm not that great at drawing humans yet, at least not when I'm trying to. Occasionally I make a half-hearted attempt and it turns out okay, but I can't do it consistently. That's probably why note I went through a phase where I drew almost nothing but ponies.
- Girls Love Chocolate: Oh, yes. I put it in my coffee every day, and whenever I go to the store I make a beeline for the candy aisle. Of course, my choices are limited by my dairy allergy, but the options I do have are pretty good.
- Gosh Dang It to Heck!: I don't swear (unless you count the word "crap" as swearing).
- Headphones Equal Isolation: I bring my headphones darn near everywhere. Justified as I get overwhelmed by noisy environments pretty easily, so they're good to have on hand.
- Heroic BSoD: Despite my best efforts, I do occasionally melt down. Most times, I'm even aware that I'm overreacting.
- Literalist Snarking: All the time. Most of the people I know don't appreciate this sort of humor as much as I do, though.
- Messy Hair: Even when I do remember to comb it, my hair is pretty much always a mess.
- Kindhearted Cat Lover: I have two cats and I love them to bits.
- Kirin: I have one as my internet persona, which has gone through a few different designs. The current iteration has Voluntary Shapeshifting abilities so as to fit into any context needed (though I haven't had to use them yet).
- Most Fanfic Writers Are Girls: Subverted. I am a girl, but none of my fanfics are about romance (and only one of them even includes it at all).
- Must Have Caffeine: I sip my daily mocha slowly over the course of several hours, using an electric coaster to keep it warm. I always use a dairy alternative due to an allergy. Usually it's almond milk, but in my experience, rice milk goes best with coffee.
- Nightmare Fetishist: I am rather fascinated by involuntary and painful transformations.
- Noodle Incident: What happened in history class stays in history class.
- No Social Skills: As an Aspie, I find socializing difficult. I've been working on it, though.
- Not-So-Bad*** Longcoat: Downplayed. I have a few sweaters that could pass for a downplayed version of the opposite, except for the fact that I don't have the bad-as-in-awesome-ness to match.
- The Perfectionist: In spades. It's the main thing holding me back.
- Perfectly Cromulent Word: "Thingamadoodle."
- Plot Allergy: I can't have gluten or dairy. It sucks sometimes, but it's a lot easier now than when I was first diagnosed. It also helps me eat better by eliminating some of the unhealthier options.
- Sophisticated As Heck: I alternate between formal and informal a lot. It seems to be especially obvious when I type. I find this frustrating because I feel like I'm presenting myself inconsistently.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: I'm a huge introvert, but I can be friendly on the occasions that I do interact with people.
- Super OCD: Downplayed. It doesn't usually get in the way of me doing things, but it's there.
- Thinking Out Loud: All the time. Sometimes it gets repetitive, though.
- This Is No Time for Knitting: Just because I'm doodling doesn't mean I'm not paying attention.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Chocolate, garlic, and fish (not together, obviously). Coffee and root beer as well, if drinks count (also not together).
- Unusual Euphemism: I occasionally use the brony term "plot" instead of "butt" (e.g. "a pain in the plot"), even when talking about non-pony-related stuff.
Agent [REDACTED] KirinAgent [REDACTED] Kirin is my internet persona, shown in the page image. She's a secret agent.
- Author Avatar: Of the "darker me" variety.
- Bad*** In A Nice Suit: Zig-zagged. The original design had a suit. It got scrapped with the next iteration, then salvaged for the current one.
- Baleful Polymorph: Currently trying to learn to use this technique, as an alternative for outright killing targets. Of course, her getting the hang of the spell will coincide with my learning to draw humans to use it on.
- Early Installment Weirdness: And how. Her design basically started out as a lesson on how NOT to make a ponysona. Then she went through a phase that looked more sensible, but wasn't a secret agent (or at least, was never shown in the suit).
- And then there's the fact that she was originally a ponysona at all.
- Kirin: Hence the name.
- Morphic Resonance: She has a black tongue, which she keeps in any form that has one. She also usually retains her green eyes, but that's by choice.
- No Name Given: [REDACTED] might actually be her real name.
- Overt Operative: Certainly dresses the part. Downplayed, though, as she still doesn't give her name.
- Permanent Placeholder: I never came up with a name for the character other than "Agent Kirin" (besides adding in [REDACTED] later on), even after changing the style. The no-name stuck.
- The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: I have yet to actually show her doing much "secret agent" stuff. I hope to avert this trope sometime in the foreseeable future.
- Required Secondary Powers: She's quick to get used to any new form she takes. While she won't necessarily be able to use a form to its fullest potential right off the bat, she at least won't struggle with basic movement.
- Viewer Gender Confusion: She's been mistaken for male in a few of the avatar-related forum games, possibly due to the images being so small.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: To fit into any context I need to put her in. Currently somewhat of an Informed Ability, as I haven't had to make use of it yet.
Average JoeAverage Joe is a character I made up on the spot one day when I got bored of drawing ponies. He gets into all sorts of adorable shenanigans.
- The Crystal Prison spell Gnasty Gnorc used in the first Spyro game was stolen from the dragons, who created it to imprison their enemies. It's specifically designed so that only a dragon can break the spell, which is why Spyro has to be the one to free them. If he'd been frozen too, Gnasty would have won.
- I still have no explanation for where all the female dragons were, though.
- The reason that Professor Pester is so scared of the Dragonache isn't just because it's fierce and powerful (although that helps). This is the thing that he sent Jardiniero on a snipe hunt for, kicking off the events of the first game. And here you are, siccing the real deal on him. No wonder he's terrified.
- The text on the back of the Arceus plates is either (a) written in some magical universal language, or (b) perceived by the reader in their own language. This would explain why these stone tablets that are supposedly as old as the universe itself are written in English, or whichever language your game is in.
- Guzma's voice sounds something like Trevor McNevan. (Jossed by the anime. Oh well.)
- Nihilego's tentacles collide while it floats, making a sound like wind chimes. It's a beautiful sound... unless you've ticked off a whole swarm of them.
- That thing Xurkitree has for a head is a sensory organ of some sort. It can "see" in all directions, except for a blind spot where the limbs attach.
- Fluttershy is still a vampire, but her condition has been suppressed enough that she experiences few to no symptoms, and it'd take one heck of a spell to bring it out again.
